Info...

9/26/17~~I AM ALIVE!!!!! I'm putting this here just in case I don't log in for a day or two.

I have been in some kind of funk lately and just feel off. I'm not sad, and I don't feel depressed but it's a similar kind of slump. I just feel like my energy has been depleted and I can't recharge. It's hard to explain but I feel extremely lazy and have had no real desire to do diddly squat for the past 3 weeks. Like literally...nothing, I've barely left my bed for almost that same amount of time. Ugh

Who knows, maybe this is depression lol...I dunno I guess I don't connect it because of the lack of sadness.

Anywhoo...if you're checking on me cuz I've been quiet...I'm fine =) I will be back to my usual self soon (I hope)...I'm cutting back on swapping, but will join a few here and there so I don't get sucked in deeper with whatever I'm going through. Swapping brings me joy on many levels...so I don't plan to take a break completely...I just don't want to get overwhelmed


*About my 1 rating~ The swap was mailed...was told it wasn't received so I resent...My partner hasn't been on the bot for quite awhile so my rating remains negative =(

TO THE PEOPLE MAILING TO ME

I am always in similar swaps so please remember to include a note with your swap or your rating may be delayed =)

SWAP STUFF

If by chance you do not receive something from me please SEND ME A MESSAGE and I will do my best to locate the package for you...if not I will gladly resend

I mark my swaps sent as soon as I drop them off...I cannot make it to the post office every day so I utilize my mailbox pickup and blue box drop offs which sometimes results in postmark delay

EXAMPLE: It's 4pm on Saturday, a day my PO isn't open...I drop off in the box and it isn't postmarked til Monday or Tues if mail reaches the processing center after midnight

These are not demand lists... they are here to give you ideas

HOLIDAY & SEASONAL SWAPS

Since I do alot of holiday swaps I figured I better make a list of things I would like for those types of swaps~you do not have to stick with this list... I love everything that is seasonal and holiday-ish especially this time of year

  • Holiday or seasonal blank notecards or postcards
  • Holiday stickers
  • Flavored cocoas and holiday or seasonal flavored teas
  • Country prim type holiday decor
  • Kawaii holiday anything
  • Halloween/Fall and Winter/Christmas scrapbooking items
  • flavored coffee for my hubby
  • fuzzy, thick, holiday, or cute socks(no toe socks please)
  • Mittens, gloves, hats and scarves... its getting so COLD here
  • Holiday sweets and treats
  • seasonal/holiday themed recipe cards
  • handmade holiday stuff... food(us/can only please)...bath and body... misc... anythings handmade

β€’-:Β¦:-β€’:STICKERS:β€’-:Β¦:-β€’

Im not real picky when it comes to stickers but I do ask that you dont send me any teacher/reward or super duper childish ones (dora, diego, spiderman, etc)

I adore scrapbook quality stickers

Some of my fave characters/types are cutesy types, care bears, food with faces, my little pony, kawaii, lisa frank, tweety, grown up, nice quality stickers...

Sheets or loose...doesnt matter just as long as they aren't the crappy ones no one really wants =)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

β€’-:Β¦:-β€’:TEA:β€’-:Β¦:-β€’

I prefer herbal teas but any is fine I will just pass on ones I dont drink...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE weird, unusual and odd flavors... or even reg flavors with cute/odd wrappers...

Dessert flavors are a fave

I love to have a supply of medicinal types of teas...any kind is fine

Fair trade and organic teas are always welcome

I am going to start drinking green tea but I dunno if I can handle unflavored though my daughter loves it... so green teas are always welcome =)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

β€’-:Β¦:-β€’:KAWAII:β€’-:Β¦:-β€’

I LOVE KAWAII in all forms... deco tape, stationary, plushies, stickers, ALL OF IT!!!

Not real picky... kawaii means cute not specific name brands...however if a swap is brand specific I do prefer that you follow that rule...

I dont have fave characters but I do love food with faces... fast food, milk and cookies, cupcakes, etc CUTE FOOD =)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

β€’-:Β¦:-β€’:Postcardsβ€’-:Β¦:-β€’:

I like all kinds of PCs...especially blank non touristy PCs...I don't find myself to be overly picky.

But for naked swap reasons here's a list of some I of our album collections Lighthouses ~covered bridges ~beach scenes ~night scenes ~tourist attractions ~state maps ~state info ~state flag ~state flower ~Capitol and capital buildings ~landmarks ~mountains ~lakes ~recipes ~Paris ~Disney ~Rude and inappropriate ~cultural ~National parks

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

β€’-:Β¦:-β€’:Other things that make me happy:β€’-:Β¦:-β€’

  • My livingroom is American wildlife theme... deer and elk and all that stuff...with accents of wood, bark and stuff like that so anything for this room would be great...even a log I can make into a candle holder from your area...
